Healing Ground Psychotherapy
Mobile 0413 529 638
My approach is gentle, relational, non-judgemental and de-pathologising. I work towards levelling any power imbalance with my clients. Rather than being the "expert" I will work with you in a collaborative relationship, accompanying you in a process of awareness-raising, getting to know yourself better. This helps us understand habitual patterns and ways of being, and to be be able to effect meaningful, desired and lasting change.
Meaningful and lasting change takes time and repetition/practice. I support my clients to build exercises, experiments and practice into their daily lives. The repetition required for enduring change occurs outside of the therapy room. Counselling and psychotherapy can be an important part of the healing process, but it is not the whole process. A therapeutic relationship with the right therapist is a support which can guide one towards greater enrichment, purpose and healing.

My approach is gentle, relational, non-judgemental and de-pathologising. I work towards levelling any power imbalance with my clients. Rather than being the "expert" I work with my clients in an authentic collaborative relationship, accompanying them in a process of awareness-raising. Together, we work toward understanding habitual patterns, stuckness and difficulties. Through growing awareness, acceptance and experimentation, we often come to understand the original "problems" as necessary and normal responses to particular components of the client's situation. Thus, what was previously considered a problem is re-framed as a creative response and can be viewed as a potentially helpful tool to be valued; available when needed.

I have been working with people - leading teams and managing organisations - for over 20 years. I have also been a parent for over 20 years and I am a passionate advocate for respectful parenting and attachment parenting. My approach is informed by my particular interest in neuroscience, trauma and attachment theory.
I offer a free initial consultation of 15 minutes, so you can get to know me to gain a sense of whether I'm a good fit for you. Choosing the right therapist is the most important decision involved in seeking therapy.

Sometimes life's challenges (and holding hurts of our past) become too great to handle on our own. At times they may leak/flood into our daily life, impacting our ability to maintain meaningful relationships and a sense of joy or meaning. If this resonates, I'd love the opportunity to work with you, to help you find your voice, agency & purpose. My approach is non-judgemental, neuroscience-informed and sensitive. I work with individual adults & relationships (couples). I'd love to hear from you....
